Nicky Henderson's flyer is looking to win this for the third time. The mare flies up that Cheltenham Hill and flies over the hurdles. Apple's Jade the only other horse which can touch this one but I'm siding with Buveur D@air to make it a three times winner.
Winner of this race last year, and with his main rivals in Apple's Jade and Laurina going elsewhere, the door is open for what should be a another victory. Ruby Walsh has indicated that "she is my best ride of the week". Should be fresh coming into this one and is very backable.
This one will prove very hard to beat and is currently unbeaten winning 4 from 4. Won a Group 1 contest at Naas last time out - He jumps well and stays forever and should win for Gordon Elliot.
Won the Grade two Red Mills Chase with relative ease in February. Finished second behind the current 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy in the RSA Chase in 2018 - Monalee to beat
Paisley did a demolition job in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham Trials Day last time out and warrants favouritism here.
Looked an absolute world beater on his last outing when winning the grade one Tattersalls Ireland Spring Juvenile Hurdle and currently unbeaten record over timber. Has a huge engine and will take all the beating here.
